SnapNrack and CertainTeed announced they are teaming up to offer complimentary solar, racking, asphalt shingle and workmanship warranties. The two companies introduced a solar panel and solar mounting option to the market that does not void the asphalt shingle limited warranty against manufacturing defects.

Under the partnership, a solar system installed with CertainTeed asphalt shingles, SnapNrack, and CertainTeed Solstice Panels will qualify for CertainTeed’s Umbrella Coverage, provided the installation is performed by a CertainTeed Solar credentialed contractor.

“One of the most common questions people ask when deciding to go solar is, ‘Will this void my roof warranty?’ With this new program from CertainTeed, homeowners can confidently know that the answer to that question is a resounding ‘No’ when their system is installed with SnapNrack mounting hardware,“ said Andrew Wickham, Director of Products & Engineering at SnapNrack.

CertainTeed’s Umbrella Coverage provides coverage for the solar system and CertainTeed asphalt shingles. Customers will experience a seamless warranty process as the entire rooftop solar system and the solar installation workmanship are warrantied under one company. Both solar and CertainTeed asphalt shingles are backed by CertainTeed.

“We are thrilled to be joining forces with SnapNrack,” said Phoebe Kwan, General Manager of Solar Solutions at Saint-Gobain. ”Our partnership with SnapNrack enables us to offer state-of-the-art solar, racking and roofing solutions along with complete peace of mind to homeowners so they can
go solar without worrying about voiding their roof warranty.”
